Finish It Up Friday

This is the last of the Friday for 2016.  I have a few finishes for this year that have not been shared.  Here is one.


Here is the beginnings of the quilt a couple years ago.  It is based on the Moda Bake Shop pattern Anasazi Medallion quilt by Shannon Mower.


Now for the finished product.  My step dad is a Vietnam Veteran.  He served our country in the Navy on the USS Myles C. Fox.  He ship was stationed in the Tonkin Gulf.   


The anchors were machine appliquéd down after edges were starched and pressed under.  The patches were found on www.MedalsofAmerica.com except the patch from his ship was found on eBay.  The large center motif is a transfer of a window cling. 

He is a retired railroad yard master.  That means he gets to tell the trains where to go when.  This train fabric is just what the back needed.


I am linking up the Crazy Mom Quilts-Amanda Jean.  Stop over and check out what others have done for 2016.

Keep sewing.  Check back in for a couple more 2016 quilts.

  3. That is a stunning quilt, you did a wonderful job on it! It is beautiful and I know it means a lot to him. My DH is also a Vietnam Veteran and has retired from the Navy. All of our veterans deserve to be recognized for their service. The trains on the back are nice, the quilt is very special!
